brunch with friends

Last Sunday I saw one of my oldest friends, Tricia, at church. She and her husband were visiting family in town and I was so excited to see her! They just moved to Pasadena where her husband is starting his medical residency and I feel like I never get to see them. So I ambushed her and told her that we were going to get together with our group of girlfriends from high school the next morning for brunch at my house. It was really last minute but I'm glad that we could spend a couple of hours together before she left. Kemra is about to have a baby in a few weeks (I pray that I won't ever have to be 9 months pregnant in the Arizona heat) and Tasha lives close by so it was great to get the four of us together.
I made this caramelized shallot and Gruyere quiche plus some French breakfast puffs (recipe tomorrow). Kemra brought the world's best cinnamon rolls and it was so fun to chat with my friends who I have such a history with. Tasha and I were roommates as freshmen at BYU and living in the dorms. I have many fond memories of living with her and can confidently say that she is one of the most genuinely kind and sweet people I have ever met. Kemra makes me laugh every time I'm with her and she always brings such insightful, interesting conversation to the table. Tricia is one of those rare people that I honestly don't know anyone who doesn't love her. She is talented and good and faithful. They're each really good examples to me and make me want to be better - the true type of friend. I wish the picture I tried to take on the self-timer of all of us together wasn't blurry but at least I got a great shot of Kemra and Tasha looking beautiful as Tricia, no doubt, is telling a humorous anecdote. That girl can capture anyone's attention with her great sense of humor!
This post has strangely turned into an ode to my friends. Anyway, it was really fun and I'm really lucky to have such great friends in my life. And in case I forgot to mention it, those cinnamon rolls were really good. :)
